Peanut Butter Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies


What’s not to love about these cookies? If you’re a fan of Reese’s peanut butter cups, these may become your new favorite cookies. I made mine with White Whole Wheat flour, but feel free to use all purpose flour, or a combination of white and wheat.


Makes about 18 cookies

1 cup unbleached all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

¼ teaspoon salt

1 stick (½ cup) unsalted butter, at room temperature

½ cup creamy peanut butter

½ cup granulated sugar

½ cup light brown sugar

½ teaspoon vanilla extract

1 egg

½ cup rolled oats

1 cup semisweet chocolate chips

¼ cup unsalted roasted peanuts, finely chopped (optional)


1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.


2. Whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt; set aside.


3. On medium speed, cream together the butter, peanut butter, granulated sugar, brown sugar, about 3 minutes. Scrape down bowl and add the egg and vanilla extract, and beat to combine. On low speed, gradually add the flour until just combined. Using large wooden spoon, stir in the oats and chocolate chips (and nuts if using).


4. Using an ice cream scoop (3 tablespoons), drop dough onto prepared baking sheets about 2 inches apart. Bake each sheet for 11-13 minutes, or until the cookies are lightly golden. Cool completely on the baking sheet and then store in an airtight container at room temperature.

I really love these cookies. I've been through 6 recipes of various cookies and cupcakes in the past 2 months and none of them have been keepers. This one make good looking cookies that tasted awesome, even on day 4! I used half whole wheat flour so I can tell myself that they are good for me.
